Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

The master of Engineering in Product Development and Systems Management at AUC prepares students for higher level professional practice in local and international markets, especially in the area of Product Development and Systems Management, covering product design, materials and manufacturing and production systems design and management.

Program Objectives

The objectives of the Master of Engineering Degree are to provide the graduates of the program with:

  • A broad knowledge of modern computational and experimental methods in engineering.
  • Detailed knowledge in engineering design, materials and manufacturing, and industrial engineering.
  • Extensive knowledge in an area of student interest from one of the fields involved in product development, namely product design, materials and manufacturing and production systems design and management.
  • Awareness of the local and global context in which mechanical engineering is practiced, locally and globally, including economic and business practices, societal needs, and considerations of public health, safety, environment, culture and ethics.
  • An ability to solve unstructured engineering problems, think critically, function well in a team, and communicate effectively.
  • A high standard of written and oral communication on technical matters.


Admission requirements are the same as those for the Master of Science Program.
